At first sight, the programme of this album could seem extravagant. Indeed, it assembles into one single volume all of Brahms’ intermezzi, the works that the composer held so dear. In doing so, Evgeni Koroliov isolates them from pieces which Brahms classifies under the same opus number and whose sequence is almost too well-known by music lovers. Frustrated by this fact and inviting us to gloss over it, Koroliov instead explores a more secretive side of Brahms: one of melancholy emotions and solitary twilight walks. And the result is overall successful: there is decidedly no monotony in this suite of slow pieces which Brahms wallowed in throughout his entire life. The almost nonchalant version which the Russian pianist portrays here seems almost to be like a series of improvisations for a few select friends. The seriousness of the expression helps us understand why Schönberg referred to Brahms as “progressive”, just as the “dissonance” of opus 117 to 119 heralds the music of the future, with its harmonic audacity so displeasing to the ears of a certain Clara Schumann, to whom some of the pieces are dedicated. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.
